Often the question is "Are you a 909 or an 808 - type person?" and for me, it's always the 909.... the kick, the ride, the toms, the snare.... it just completely eclipses the 808... don't @ me! I appreciate everyone is entitled to their opinion, and perhaps the era I grew up in has formed that tastes.
If you're an 808 fan, look away now as we take a look at how to recreate 7 classic beats on the (superior) TR-909. In the video, K's Music Lounge goes over the likes of Madonna, Phil Collins (maybe I prefer the 808 now....) Daft Punk, Faithless, and Bjork - programming each element as he goes.
Great fun! More videos from K's Music Lounge here: https://www.youtube.com/@ksmusiclounge1648
